when it snowed + snowed

+ snowed some more...
this time last year, i had the snuggliest newborn who slept 12 hours a day minimum + i was still figuring out how to be a mom to this tiny being who had graced our home. snow days galore + snuggling up on the couch 24/7 was totally my bag of chips. this year is different for me though. for the first time in probably my entire life, i am not praying every day for snow. womp womp. this year, i've become one of those 'itching for spring + warm weather' people... GASP. honestly though, it's abel. he's so busy now + i want to get out to the park + the zoo + take walks + every other outdoor, walk your socks off activity with him.
as soon as he started walking at christmas, he might as well have been running + the rest is history. i love it so much + am so excited for this constantly keeping me on my toes phase of life with him. so to be honest with you, we are over the snow for now + are just waiting on some warmer sun days so we can party our pants off in the great outdoors for more than a couple of minutes...
which brings me to these couple of minutes that we spent outside on our most recent snow day. abel LOVED the big flakes falling on his face, he was so tickled. we put him in the snow + he didn't move, just smiled + looked at us like, 'okay, now what. are you gonna pick me back up? this stuff is half my height.' ... or at least that's what i imagined his thoughts to be. it was the best 5 minutes of our snow day + totally worth the 15 that we took getting bundled up beforehand. 
so anyway, bring on the warmer days + sunshine whenever you feel like it mother nature... but until then, we will try to enjoy + savor the snow globe ones we have left.
